Ingredient Beta-Phenylethylamine HClBeta-Phenylethylamine HCl is an ingredient found in certain diet pills. It’s a naturally occurring chemical that is found in the human body but that can also be made synthetically in a lab.

What is Beta-Phenylethylamine HCl

Beta-Phenylethylamine HCl is called many different things.  On a bottle of diet pills, you may see it listed in that way, but it may also be listed as β-phenylethylamine, β-phenethylamine, and phenylethylamine among other names. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) calls this substance 2-phenylethylamine, which is represented as C8H11N.

How is this Ingredient Used?

There are many types of supplements that include Beta-Phenylethylamine HCl in their formulas.  These include everything from weight loss, athletic performance, mood improvement, attention enhancement, and depression.  That said, while it has been clinically researched, this doesn’t mean that it is appropriate for the treatment of all those conditions.

The reason that it is found in so many types of supplement is that this ingredient can have several different types of action in the body. Science continues to study it to better understand exactly what they are, as many of them appear to be entirely unrelated and finding a connection will be highly useful.

How Does Beta-Phenylethylamine HCl Work?

Scientists have yet to figure out exactly how this ingredient works.  What is known is that it can act as a neurotransmitter within the brain.  This is one of its properties when produced naturally by the body.  This helps to explain why it is being taken seriously for potential uses in areas such as the treatment of weight loss energy and motivation, depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and schizophrenia, among others.

Some research has also indicated that there may be additional benefits to using Beta-Phenylethylamine HCl in the food industry.  For instance, microbial metabolism in fermented food and meat and the thermal processing to produce chocolate cause this substance to naturally occur.  Research has suggested that it could be used as a type of antimicrobial agent in certain conditions.

It is for these reasons, among others, that Beta-Phenylethylamine HCl has been included in the formula for APEX-TX5.  Many of its benefits have the potential to provide meaningful support to dieters who are trying to lose weight through the use of healthy lifestyle changes. This substance and its balance with the other ingredients in the formula were meticulously planned and measured in the diet pill’s careful development.
